Darvish out of WBC

“How hard do you think it was for Yu Darvish to make this decision, Wash?”
“It must’ve been incredibly hard.”

It would work better if you removed the "Darvish" in your intro.

I see what Yu did there.

Jeter is also out of the WBC due to his broken ankle. That's a bit of a setback in his quest to best Rose's record for the most hits in MLB sanctioned competition - regular season, playoffs, All-Star Game and the WBC. Still might make it, though.

Speaking of which, it'd be cool if bb-ref added WBC stats.
